Hero image adjusting/revealing based upon browser width

Hi -

I'm not really a CSS guy (just know enough to be dangerous) - and I've had a project land in my lap where I need to design a banner/hero image function that reveals/adjusts based upon browser width.

Is there a JQuery/CSS function or something similar (or some guidance you can provide) on how to accomplish this?

A good example would be on http://www.silveroak.com

Take a look at the header image.  The center point remains constant - revealing more/less of the image as you expand/contract the browser window.  That's the effect I'm trying to accomplish.  :)

Any suggestions?

Thanks ahead of time!

That does not look like it really adjusts.  Check out the bootstrap framework which is a responsive framework of css and js/jquery.   They use the term jumbotron http://getbootstrap.com/examples/jumbotron-narrow/

Otherwise, you can either use media queries or a width as a percentage.

Well, the third image (the one with the trees) is the one that illustrates the concept best.  When you adjust the browser horizontal width - the center point of the image remains constant/aligned with the div beneath it - while cropping/revealing equally from left and right.

I think I broke jsbin...that link did not work for a bit. (which is why we delete link only answers)
